Wembley to host Champions League final again in 2013
Today Thursday, uefa.com has announced that Wembley will once again be the venue for the Champions League final in 2013. Amsterdam will host the Europa League final and Prague will replace Monaco as the venue for the European Supercup.
Wembley Stadium, where Barça recently defeated Manchester United (3-1) to win the Champions league
and also where the club won the title for the first time in 1992, will again host the final in
2013. UEFA announced this today, saying that the British capital has been chosen because the oldest
football association in the world, the FA, will be celebrating its 150th anniversary. That means
the stadium will host two finals in just three years, the 2012 final in between being in Munich.
Amsterdam and Prague also have events to look forward to in 2013. The Dutch city will be the
venue for the Europa League final (in 2012 it is in Bucharest), and Prague will host the European
Supercup, after Monaco has hosted every edition since 1998.
